September 2009 Tool Newsletter

Blair has released the September 2010 newsletter, and it contains a mix of Tool and non-Tool news.  It largely talks about artists Richard S. Shaver and Stanislav Szukalski, and largely reads as an advertisement for an upcoming exhibition.  Adam and Danny are noted to be admirers and collectors of their work.

There is also a paragraph of Tool news, that appears to be obscured, perhaps by some kind of code:

As I’m sure most of you know, PUSCIFER will be touring this fall. But what you might not know is that some of the shows will be———- SPIDER, SPY from DER. An evil sounding name for an evil insect – a DER-SPY———- Besides the next Volto! show, Danny will be————- PENCIL: A PEN THAT SEES ILL IS A GOOD PEN TO WRITE WITH———– Adam also has a few things going on, but the one that will make fans of Tool———— T-STRONGLY INTEGRATIVE———- T-INTEGRATION. GROWTH———– Justin on the other hand————BALDERDASH————- a squib is a small firework———- (NOTE: using their mech, deros are tampering the content, deleting and changing everything that I type———— DEATH De an te h… the te force of the human obliterated by disintegrant energy (de)———- take precautions!—————————– DEIADE (God murder)———————–

If anyone has any insight into that then let me know.  I don’t see much interesting there.  Adam appears to be working on whatever the hell he’s been working on for a couple of years now it seems.  Danny is busy working with his side projects, and Justin appears to be doing nothing (though probably something), and we all know what Maynard is up to…

i was trying to be funny..you know…like a fart-in-an-elevator.
i do enjoy Blair’s crypticiousness. His newsletters are like masturbating with a cheese grater – slightly amusing but mostly painful.
hey, what’s blue and roots old people?
me in my lucky, blue suit!

Blair mentions “Deros” in this Newsletter… Deros are the evil subterranean dwellars from the Richard S. Shaver “Amazing Stories” science fiction magazine’s “Shaver Mystery” which i know Adam is a fan of.  Shaver also spoke of an ancient language called “Mantong” in which each sound had a hidden meaning and by applying a certain formula to any word you could decode a secret meaning to any word or phrase. I’m sure this is Blair’s attempt at this….  possibly a way of letting us know that Adam is making progress with his comic book project.

Here is the Mantong alphabet…. have fun: The Mantong Alphabet – A – is for Animal B – is to Be C – means See D – is the harmful energy generated by the Sun E – is Energy F – means Fecund G – means to Generate H – means Human I – means I J – is the same as G – generate K – means Kinetic, as in motion or energy L – is Life M – means Man N – means child, as in ‘ninny’ O – means Orifice, a source P – is Power Q… Read more »

“the teros (inTEgrative RObots) and deros (DEtrimental RObots) of Shaver’s underground world are the denizens of a parallel dimension – perhaps even an endogenous tryptamine-enriched realm” aka DMT. “in order to prevent us from discovering the secret of these ancient machines, the hideously deformed dero tamper with the “photo-stones”,  changing them right before our very eyes.” like the TOOL related News section at the bottom. he’s preventing us from discovering the secret of tool’s ancient machines, figuratively speaking of course. “At least this is the picture painted by Richard Sharpe Shaver, and possibly a detrimental ray (Palmer).” (From wikipedia) Ray… Read more »

DANNY – PENCIL: A PEN THAT SEES ILL IS A GOOD PEN TO WRITE WITH This is a tougher one, this could be interpreted as Danny is still changing or re arranging his drum parts for the new album, in an attempt to polish the songs before recording, or is changing a few things during the recording going on now.   ADAM – T-STRONGLY INTEGRATIVE———- T-INTEGRATION. GROWTH Integrative: combining and coordinating diverse elements into a whole Integration – The act or process of making whole or entire These words suggest Adam has written most of the album, and is now… Read more »

Interesting theory, AzBay…
 
Though, I cant help but thinking the phrases are an anagram with some of the words missing – where the dashes are located.

Wait, September 2010? Aren’t we getting a little ahead of ourselves?

Shit, guys. This is news from the future. A year from now Blair will still be posting puzzles. Ohhh, this isn’t good.

If he has nothing to “post” why not have an open post to “answer our questions” not that I really have any so I guess that is a bad idea too.
